This reasoning can be summarized in the following:

Result 4. (i) The function

?(x) = u(x) exp(ig(u(x)))

is a solution of (1) whenever g is a solution of (24) and w(x) = f (u(x)) is a solution

of

?

2w = , wµ wµ = ?

w

with f given by (23).

(ii) The function

?(x) = u(x) exp(ig(u(x)))

is a solution of (1) whenever g is a solution of (26) and w(x) = f (u(x)) is a solution

of

?N

2w = , wµ wµ = ?

w

with f given by (25) for N = 1.

We treat equations (24) and (26) relating g to the nonlinearity F as before: we

assume a form for g and treat the equations as determining F . Taking g(u) = u? ,

Equation (27) is of some interest: of all the possible nonlinearities F (|?|), the

nonlinearity F (|?|) = |?|2 gives the widest possible symmetry group, admitting

the conformal group. Equation (27) (and indeed equation (1)) can be reduced to the

nonlinear Schr?dinger equation in (1 + 2)-dimensional time-space (see [1]) with the

o

same nonlinearity. This equation also admits the widest possible symmetry group

for nonlinearities of the given type. It can be reduced to the (1 + 1)-dimensional

nonlinear Schr?dinger equation with the same nonlinearity, and this equation has

o

334 P. Basarab-Horwath, N. Euler, M. Euler, W.I. Fushchych

soliton solutions (the well known Zakharov–Shabat soliton). Using this soliton, we

can construct a new type of solution of the hyperbolic wave equation (27). Of course,

this does not imply that (27) has soliton solutions located in three-dimensional space.

3. Conclusion

We have demonstrated an approach which can give new exact solutions of some

nonlinear wave equations of the same type as (1). The novelty in our approach lies

in the fact that we exploit the compatibility conditions for the d’Alembert–Hamilton

system to dictate the type of nonlinearity and the exact solution(s). Moreover, some

of the equations we obtain appear to be of interest in physics, but we are unable to

make any statement about the physical nature of the exact solutions we obtain, as

our approach has not used any physical criteria to single out any type of solution.

Of course, this is not the only approach possible; we could, for instance, reduce (1)

to the Schr?dinger equation (as in [1]) and then apply a similar method to this

o

new equation in the amplitude-phase representation. Also, it is possible to consider

a more general connection between the amplitude and phase, such as u = G(vµ vµ )

for some function G. This leads to a system involving the Born–Infeld equation,

which has a very wide symmetry group, and we obtain new exact solutions of (1).

This differential connection between amplitude and phase will of course be important

when we allow nonlinearities dependent on derivatives, such as F (|?|, ?? ?µ ). We

µ

will report on this work in a forthcoming paper.

Planck’s constant is not constant

in different quantum phenomena

O. BEDRIJ, W.I. FUSHCHYCH

Висунута iдея про те, що стала Планка h в мезодинамiцi iстотно вiдрiзняється

вiд сталої Планка в електродинамiцi. Запропонованi рiвняння руху для електрона,

протона i нейтрона, в яких стала Планка має рiзнi значення.

At present, it is a generally accepted axiom that the Planck’s constant

h = 6.626 · 10?34 J · s (1)

has the same meaning and value in electrodynamics, mesodynamics, quantum theory,

theory of quarks, gravidynamics, etc. Planck’s fundamental quantum hypothesis, put

forward for the explanation of the energy spectrum of black body radiation, is ad hoc

employed in all quantum physics.

In [1] we have suggested the following hypothesis: the fundamental value of

Planck’s constant h in mesodynamics is considerably different from (1). This assumpti-

on, for example, can be explained by the fact that in mesodynamics, not a photon but a

meson is emitted, which mass does not equal zero. There are no fundamental grounds

to assume that h in mesodynamics has to have the value of (1) [1–4].

In this short note we focus on the equation of motion for the fundamental particles

(e — electron, p — proton, n — neutron) based on the aforementioned hypothesis.

Schr?dinger equations for electron, proton and neutron have the following form in our

o

approach:

The Ve , Vp , Vn potentials are assumed to be depended on he , hp and hn , the wave

functions ?e , ?p and ?n as well as the coordinates of particles.

In addition, let us consider Poincar? invariant equations of motion for meson and

e

for e, p, n. As is known, the energy of an elementary particle is defined by formulae:

E 2 = c2 p2 + m2 c4 , p2 = p2 + p2 + p2 , (5)

a a 1 2 3

where m is the mass of a particle; c is the velocity of light in vacuum; pa is

momentum. Formulae (5) give us the following Poincar?-invariant equations for

e

particles

where ?e , ?p , ?n are four-component wave functions; u is a scalar wave function

for meson with mass mµ ; ?µ are 4 ? 4 Dirac’s matrices. Equations (7), (8) and

(9) are Dirac’s equations with different Planck’s constants, Ve = Ve (?e , ?p , ?n , x, t),

Vp = Vp (?e , ?p , ?n , x, t), Vn = Vn (?e , ?p , ?n , x, t).

Consequently, to describe interactions between electron and proton, electron and

neutron, etc., it is necessary to use different values for e , p and n in equations

(6)–(9).

A phenomenological approach, proposed in [2–4] for determining fundamental

constants and based on a few known constants, gives us the following values [2, 3]:

he = 6.626 · 10?34 J · s, hp = 2.612 · 10?30 J · s, hn = 2.668 · 10?30 J · s.

Obviously, because he , hp and hn enter most of quantum relationships, we must re-

view the standard theoretical schemes and possibly explore new physical experiments.

This fundamental challenge will take time. Our main objective is to show a new

possibility for description of interactions of particles which is related to a new value

of h.

According to [5, 6], formulae (5) can be used for nonlinear generalization of

equations of motion for elementary particles. Assume that in formulae (5) c is not

constant but a function of field (or a functional with respect to fields)

? ?

? ? ?? ? ?? . (10)

c = c ??,

?xµ ?xµ

Therefore, we can obtain from (10) a nonlinear equation of the type (6)–(8). This

assumption means that velocity of a signal is a function of field [5, 6) and not

a constant, as is presently accepted for the velocity of light in vacuum. The latter

statement is a cornerstone of modern quantum physics. We should like to emphasize

that here we have discussed a new glance on this fundamental point.

A more detailed development of these ideas will be published elsewhere.
